Flashole I have a smitty built that's not tow rated. Says it's for accessories only, but the bumper is 1/4" steel and I fabricated some brackets that tie it into the frame. I suspect that it's not going to come apart anytime soon. I plan to tow around a M416 trailer that I just finished up. If it does come apart, I'm just going to build one that I know won't come apart.

harleydragon it sounds worthless to me too..when I want a heavy duty bumper I just build it myself so I know what I have

Spitse It says on the hitch itself not for towing so I assumed that meant not hooking up a trailer.

Any suggestions on a similar style with at least a Class III rating? I'm. Not wanting to pull a 30' boat or anything, just maybe my motorcycle or utility trailer around locally for brush or parking. For big jobs I have my megacab 3500. But anything has to be better than the 200 lbs tung rating I have now.
You should not be exceeding that 200 pound tongue limit any ways, as that is the max rating for your Jeep. As long as you balance your load on the trailer properly, you will have no problem hauling around your motorcycle

2JeepsThatRun Look at the smittybuilt rock crawler bumper I have a class 3 and I think it's basically the same as yours
